policy speech coming tomorrow in las vegas. there is the immigration 8 right there. marco rubio a part of that immigration 8. and he wrote a las vegas review op-ed saying my hope is president obama will use his voice and influence to further this approach. however, if what he offers is a process for the undocumented that is more lenient, faster and unfair to those waiting to come legally, it won't bode well for reform. didn't use the word amnesty but that's what he's talking about. >> you know what other word he didn't use, thomas? illegal. so he intended to talk about illegal immigrants, illegal immigration. and we've seen a change in the rhetoric of how marco rubio is talking about immigration. marco has come to the table and really put his face forward. what he has done is he's the enforcer. he's the one in this gang of eight that said we can have a path to citizenship but we've got to keep beefing up the border and we have to look at the technology to track the people who are here. so he wants to make himself known as the tough cowboy in all of this. >> he's a latino republican wit
like the thinks marco rubio is laying out. >> he's a tea party favorite and potential presidential candidate in 2016. many here say he's a key to getting conservatives to support the bill. >> i support and agree with the principles he laid out about earned legalization. making sure we can fix this problem. >> and then there's the political calculus. some republicans say they need this bill to win over hispanic voters. >> i'll given you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatic will i the hispanic vote which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we've got to understand that. >> hispanics supported president obama over mitt romney with more than 70% of the vote. this plan could face a tougher time in the house which is controlled by republicans but it's not even legislation yet. it's simply four pages of principles and tomorrow, anne-marie, we get the president's vision. >>> this morning another winter storm is moving from the midwest into the northeast bringing with it a dangerous mix of freezing rain, sleet,
the world. that is an honest policy debate. paul will have it over the next couple years with marco rubio and others in the senate. there will be more rand paul type candidates running. i think it's healthy for the party to have the debate. i agree with the caller more than he would think. i have never been for shutting down debate or ruling out different points of view in the party. i think a help the party does challenge its own assumptions. in this case i really think we will see out of president obama the great cost from retreating from the world. host: if he runs, marco rubio would have to give up his senate seat. in the wall street journal -- she writes that it will take a stand unity to fight president obama. can the gop in washington now develop those things? guest: i don't think we can assume there will be unity. you should not just cast a vote for the sake of unity. there are some issues where you can have unity, on procedural votes. i think people can modify their views for the sake of unity. i agree with what peggy says. when the president said you did not build that, that was
faced two members of the committee with similar ambitions. republican senators marco rubio of florida and a very aggressive rand paul of kentucky. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have releifed you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> reporter: but today also brought moments of sorrow. just days from her retirement, secretary clinton twice choked up, discussing the four americans killed that night. ambassador chris stevens, sean smith, tyrone woods, and glenn dougherty. >> i stood next to president obama has the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters and the wives left alone to raise their children. >> reporter: later this afternoon, in testimony before the house foreign affairs committee, clinton was more subdued and mostly welcomed by republicans. >> i wish you the best in your future endeavors, mostly. >> reporter: though there were
cain, lindsey graham, marco rubio, and jeff flake. this would offer an immigration plan for millions here illegally, it would also have an employment verification. and cracking down on companies that hired unauthorized workers. the president, as you know, carol, will also be taking up this issue this week. he'll be heading to las vegas tomorrow. he met monday with the congressional hispanic caucus to sort of talk and preview this plan that he's already put out, but he'll be highlighting tomorrow. >> brianna keilar reporting live from the white house this morning. >>> also today, about two hours from now, president obama plans to meet with police chiefs and sheriffs from around the nation to talk about reducing gun violence. the police chiefs of newtown, connecticut, and aurora, colorado, saw their share of gun violence last year also expected to attend. even as the president convenes this meeting, a law enforcement backlash continues. a wisconsin sheriff is now encouraging citizens to take up arms and not solely rely on law enforcement for protection. >> with officers laid off and furloug
carolina's lindsey graham, marco rubio of florida and jeff flake of arizona. this comes as president obama flies to las vegas to outline his vision for immigration. senator durbin says immigration reform, a comprehensive plan is long overdue. >> we are committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law we can live with. we've virtually going for 25 years without a clear statement about immigration policy. that is unacceptable in this nation of immigrants. >> reporter: the plan also calls for easier entry for immigrants who have math, science and engineering skills. bill? bill: there is a lot of politics laced to this entire issue. how do the politics figure into this proposal, steve? >> reporter: first it comes during an important window of opportunity before the midterm elections of 2014 get underway, before all the campaigning gets underway. it comes just after president obama was reelected partly because of the strong support of latinos, the fastest growing minority group in the u.s. senator john mccain acknowledged that reality yesterday. >> give y
. this bipartisan group includes marco rubio, florida u.s. senator and influential up-and-comer in the republican party and of cuban descent. he will be influential. john mccain campaigned against george w. bush in 2000, a long time advocate of immigration reform is big advocate of this. democrats almost every case on this bipartisan committee as well as in the senate are expected to follow the president's lead whatever he outlines tomorrow many they're on board with that agenda. the big question and stumbling block has been for decades is border security. how do you define it, how do you support it? this includes the use of drones, technology, all kinds of electronic surveillance and et cetera, critics say there is not enough. you need a fence and more troops on the border. how that gets legislated and sorted out we her from the president and house republicans will be influence in the outcome. house republicans want to be very much a part of passing this legislation this time. jamie: i would love to see our troops continue to work down there. that would be so helpful. carl, thanks. jon: for more
and what could be a comprehensive bill. i would hope that marco rubio and menendez and other members of the senate work together to gather something that is strong and comprehensive. a piece meal approach will not work. >> is this amnesty? >> you will see changes in the republican party on this issue. the republicans recognized politically that they have to have more inclusive policies. they have to reach out to people and morally. it's the right thing to do. welcome people to the country. it makes us stronger and enriches us. i think you will see a different tone to the debate and think there will be elements in both parties that oppose it. they worry that wages will be kept down if you let people into america. whatever you call it, amnesty. there is going to be the elements that will be marginalized and be fewer this debate than last time. >> i don't think there is any doubt they have a chance of passing comprehensive immigration and president bush tried unsuccessfully even though you have and ted kennedy. plunging temperatures, ice and snow gripping much of the country right now.
leaders that are growing in our party, like the ones you mentioned including marco rubio, that can really help us deliver the message. absolutely and we have 30 governors, right now. we hold 30 states and if we have some of those governors come forward we'll have a great crop to pick from when it comes to nominating their president. >> rick: quickly, final word from you? is there a republican out there, right now, that you think democrats would least like to face in a future presidential contest, someone who scares you? >> i'll let them do their nominating but if they point to the governors they have serious issues. rick snyder, rick scott, tom corbett, nikki haley? they are all below 40% approval rating and the only guy in a battle ground state that is actually doing decent is john kasich, and he's at 42%. i'm not sure if the model or people they should follow are their governors, they are having significant problems themselves. >> rick: have to leave it there. thanks and thanks for come in. >> arthel: a michigan mother is fighting to ensure the duty dog who served alongside her son is b
and get heavy in the summer. >> senator marco rubio getting ready to join the bipartisan group working immigration reform. do you think a high profile latino like rubio can push it past the finish line? >> i think he can help, particularly with many republicans who have been unwilling to move on this issue. so, to the extent that his voice can lend support and move the ball forward, i think that is only be a good thing. >> before i let you get out of here, we should note you are the president of the freshman class of house democrats. first of all, do you run for that? or is that one of those jobs that no one kind of wants and they say, seems like a nice guy, give it to him. >> it's me and a few people, we are share responsibilities. >> how is it going so far? >> going well, it's a great group of democrats, we have 49 democratic freshman folk have come to washington to get things done and we are working on those things now. >> and how is your twin brother? how is the mayor? >> my brother is doing well. you know, happy to be mayor of san antonio, just announced his re-election campaign,
with maybe marco rubio on immigration, and try to have a real legacy. >> i think back to your former boss, i have political capital to spend and i'm going to spend it. do you see the same thing for president obama? >> i do. and the interesting thing is, mandates are that which you create as the president. you can create more and do more if you do well. if the economy comes back and you can convince people to come with you. but there's a wild card here. and it's iran. nobody needs to forget iran will be a major issue. president obama will likely have to wrestle with in a serious way. >> we want to thank you all. we'll continue to talk to you throughout this hour. we have breaking news now. you can almost hear the celebrating in baltimore. because just moments ago, the ravens beat the patriots and are heading to the super bowl. the 49ers inched out their opponent for the trip to the super bowl. jim harbaugh played for a string of nfl teams. it is the first time in history this has happened. brother on brother matchup will be a heavy story line in the leadup to the game. we'll have a lot more c
to marco rubio. when i said as a candidate we're not going to deport grandmothers. she's been here 25 years. we hay nominee who said yes, we would, that she would self-deport. i think at that point we lost asians. we lost latinos. you can't lose asians, latinos, american americans, and young people and think you're going to be competitive. i think we have to come to grips with the reality. i agree exactly with marsha. we have to learn to communicate in the world of young people on their terms but we also have to understand that 83 need to be a country of immigrants where republicans are seen as welcoming hard-working competent people, not prepared to kick grandmother out. >> schieffer: all right, well thank you all, both, for being here. we're going to continue this conversation when we will bring in other folks, folk tradition the romney and obama campaign schedules a couple of washington's smartest analysts. we'll be back. >> schieffer: back now for a little analysis. and we welcome kevin madden and stephanie cutter, who spent a lot of time on this broadcast and others during the campaign
, marco rubio said that women are already in combat and we should put the best soldiers forward regardless of their gender. just that juxtaposition of women getting infections in the ditch, and here we go the republican party. >> i take all of my advice from newt gingrich. >> and all of the bodily functions. >> and marital, too. >> yes. >> look, i'm thrilled that servicewomen will have equal career opportunities to advance in the armed force, because the military is just that it is another employer, and we should never ever condone employment discrimination in america by any way, but by the same tone my excitement is tempered by the b abhorrent violence against women in the military. and we are talking about a high chance of being assaulted by one of your own than being killed by the enemy. >> that is where we are going to go after the break, this question of how there is a different combat for military women, and the fight against sexual assault when we return. >>> the new expansion of combat roles was not the only message to come out of washington about women in the military this week.
's colleague, john war, points out on huff post that marco rubio, florida senator, is very smartly trying to change the vocabulary of this debate, detoxify the term amnesty which has allowed talk radio, conservatives to dismiss almost any move on immigration. he's saying what we have under president obama, what we currently have is amnesty. republicans are going to try and change it. he's trying to take the power away from that word. >> all right. we'll see what happens. i saw the other day -- if anybody has an explanation, let me know -- jeb bush, they had approvals/disapprovals, it was that story on hillary and how her approval rating was so high. jeb bush was upside down by ten points. >> it's only his last name. >> maybe they thought it was george. >> that last name. what should he change it to stein? >> how did you come up with that? >>> new orleans enters a brave new era. the hornets are out and the pelicans -- the pelicans are in. that's coming up next in sports. keep it right here on "morning joe." [ man ] ring ring... progresso this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower chol
, on the republican side, senator mccain, marco rubio, coming out with a plain before the president unveils his. tomorrow the president is going to jet to las vegas to unveil his immigration plan. these senators putting out a marker. here are the three big points of this plan. and this is going to be the biggest debate on immigration in six years since back in 2007 when president bush's plan was deeted. he defeated. here are the three big paths. it will provide a path to legal citizenship for the people in the country illegally. that's dependent on increasing border security before that happened and some other procedural safeguards. and three, there's going to be a little faster path to citizenship for seasonal agricultural workers and for young people who are brought to the country illegally. so that's the nod to the dream act that's so popular on the left. >> andrea, what chances do a major plan like this have of getting through congress? >> i think better than ever. and the real sadness here is that john mccain, lindsey graham and others are totally behind this now. if they had been able to
. this is the most diverse generation in american history. i think what marco rubio is doing now, going around to grassroots republicans around the country, talking to talk radio about what it is going to take to modernize the way republicans think about immigration, and think about reaching out to the hispanic population, which is, you know, it is -- over 40%. the millennial generation is 40% nonwhite. and the majority -- minority in that group is hispanic. we have to think, how are we going to connect to this generation, how are we going to get back to what george bush did in 2004, earn 30% of that vote. let's get back to that place. >> it has been on a downside through mccain and romney. probably believed the first option is something on immigration, in this congress. john, to you on jindal specifically. is he just positioning himself for 2016 with this type of rhetoric? >> yes. >> simple answer. >> that's the simple true answer. i mean, look, part of what is disingenuous about the speech, he spends a lot of time running down washington, saying -- running down the federal dwo government. he
you to listen to what senator marco rubio, a member of the senate committee, what he said today at the hearing with john kerry. >> north korea announced that they are developing a weapon that can reach the united states of america and i think the bush administration was wrong to remove north korea from the list of states sponsored terrorism and i hope we'll reverse that. >> you were there about five years ago when the relationship at least seemed to be improving. and what about under the young leader jim jong-un. he has come into office and has been there nearly a year now and has followed his father's hard line, military force, pulling rockets, missile, satellite, nuclear program into their military program. and that is a bit of a worry. also people who are trying to figure out which way to go forward, it looks like he's trying to prove himself as a young leader and he is young and has old military around him and he's trying to project himself on the world stage. so i think the interesting thing will be is there any hope of resumption of the u.s., china, japan, those talks with
-- with marco rubio on a plan that you want to put forward. tell us about it. >> well, there are a number of plans going on right now, and i think it's actually an exciting opportunity for bipartisan work. one of the things that a group of us is working on is the h1v visa issue, and this is scientists, engineers, people who are really literally banned from our country. sometimes they get trained in our country, and then we literally send them off to start the next high-tech company or the next google in india or someplace else. it gives us the opportunity -- >> he always says when somebody gets an mba, we should staple a green card on the back of it because they go back, let's say, to new delhi and they create an i.t. company that hires 2,000 people there instead of 2,000 people in north carolina. it's lunacy. >> this country was built with immigrants with their ideas and inventions. one of them starts an invention and then they hire tons of other people. >> senator, you agree with that, right? >> they're letting canada do this. they have opened it up and we need to open it up here. >> i
of thinking has been helpful even in the wake of the election. if you listen to what people like marco rubio or paul ryan have been saying, it's different from what they themselves were saying six months ago, a year ago. i think the focus is turning to the right place. that doesn't mean that he'll persuade the public, but it certainly helps to ask the right question if you're looking for the right answer. >> where joe, i want to bring up something that my friend john podhoretz mentioned, and i say that carefully because reihan salam, my name has up been butchered by others, so i want to thank you for the privilege of butchering someone else's name. it's a rare treat for me. [laughter] i wanted to ask you, part of what i heard in john podhoretz's remarks is that some of the difficulties we encountered, shall we say, during the invasion of iraq and the occupation were things that really damaged the republican brand in a deep way, yet -- and so you've had a lot to say about foreign policy. you've also had a thing or two to say about the republican position on taxes and a number of other issues.
